Where is the work in Dubbo?
The jobs, skills and industries that are in demand now
IF you are looking for a job and have skills in project management, agribusiness, administration, aged and/or disability care, or construction, you might just be in luck.
According to executive recruiter, Melinda Barton from Spinifex Recruiting, these are just some of the industries in the Dubbo region looking for workers.
“Retail is also a significant employer in our region, as is education and
childcare,” she told Dubbo Photo News.
“The mining sector is always looking for people too, but further west, not all that close to Dubbo. There are also mines recruiting in Parkes, Orange and West Wyalong.
“Across the region, there have been a number of solar farm projects approved for construction, which again means more jobs.”
Ms Barton said she has mostly seen skilled or professional work being advertised at present, likely because of the several infrastructure and commercial projects planned for the region including the train maintenance facility and local mine expansions.
The experienced recruiter also believes the ongoing dry spell has created additional roles in the area.
“There are government agencies and community service organisations delivering programs associated with supporting regional communities throughout this unprecedented drought,” Ms Barton said.
